Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

Arab Media Surprise: US action in supposedly restraining Israel is being noted, praised including in pro-Hizbullah media

An interesting turn over these last ten years of translating SOME (only some) of the arabic media…. these past days are seeing more and more lines and stories about how the US is exerting pressure on Israel, is arguing against escalation… is coordinating with Iran and is more burdened by Israel than the old perceived knee-jerk sympathy/order taking.

This is surprising of course to read in pro-hizbullah media especially…. although when one considers that a top Hizbullah official told in me in August that the US is now “a factor of stability in Lebanon,” well, it’s not so surprising.
